Ham (and eggs)

November 30, 2004

Sam and I are putting together a masterclass ensemble cast of the hammiest actors ever to mug their way through a role on celluloid. The aim is to eventually develop a screenplay for the biggest guerning bombastathon in the history of cinema. The contender so far, in no particular order ...

  • Brian Blessed
  • Christopher Walken
  • Al Pacino
  • Robert DeNiro
  • Gary Oldman
  • Dennis Hopper
  • Richard E. Grant

There're plenty more to be named. C'mon! Suggestions please!

Two immediate thoughts: Mugmaster Jim Carrey... and Williaham Shatner!

Oh gawd, Shatner, of course!

I also forgot Bruce Campbell of Evil Dead fame!

Must cast Hasselhoff to Reprise his Evil Michael role (or even his Nick Fury - Agent of Shield!)

Throw in Jack Nicholson to do the same with his Joker?

Alan Rickman!

Charlie Sheen, just for his crying scene in 'Wall Street'.

And Kevin Bacon. You say you want ham, senor? Ees next best thing!

Well, Nic Cage and Sean Connery, if only for 'The ROCK!'.

Ben Affleck in pretty much any movie he's been in.

Any Actor that's ever been in a John Woo Hollywood movie?

That ginger kid wots in them there Harry Potter films. A young 'un but he mugs like a champ.

Cameron Diaz is also a bit hammy, but let's look back at the gold standard here folks - we're looking for porkflesh to rival "DIIIIIIIIIIVE MY HAWKMEN!"

Actually, speaking of Flash Gordon, the actress who played Princess Aura, Ornella Muti, gave a very hammy vamp performance! Mmmmmmmm, Princess Aura ...
